Calling All Writers

Peregrin Publishing is calling for submissions for Escape, an anthology of writings by North Islanders.

Escape: Almost all of us have wanted to escape from something or to something. Some of us long to walk to the edge of the world. Others to escape from the edge. There are those who want to escape gravity, while others are escape artists. Maybe there’s a party, an exam, a job, or even a conversation you wanted to escape. Perhaps you witnessed an escape. Whatever escape means to you, we’d like to read about it.

Based in Campbell River, B.C., Peregrin Publishing is a new company made up of six individuals who have been involved in the arts for many years. Among us are writers, editors and graphic artists. We share a vision to publish and promote writing that will add significantly to the provincial, national and international literary landscapes, with an emphasis on the works of writers living on North Vancouver Island (north of the Oyster River) and the adjacent islands.

Genres accepted for the anthology include: fiction, non-fiction, and illustrated stories up to 5,000 words; poetry, up to five poems. Submissions for Escape may be sent via e-mail or snail mail. The deadline for submissions is October 3, 2011. Please visit our website www.peregrinpublishing.ca to view our complete submission guidelines.
